How are you specifying your cross-compilation sysroot? Make sure you use
the -XR parameter for that, and not -Fl or so. -Fl just instructs the
compiler/linker to add a directory to the list of standard directories
to search, rather than to completely ignore your host system and only
look for libraries in the hierarchy below the sysroot.
